Honor Oak trainer celebrates Wrighty and Rocky

adidas Honor Oak shoe

adidas and Arsenal have released a new limited edition trainer called the Honor Oak. The Honor Oak is a reference to the part of London where both players grew up. The trainer was created to celebrate the friendship between two club legends, Ian Wright and David Rocastle, more than 30 years since they first played together for the Gunners.

The Honor Oak has a dedication to both Wright and Rocastle inside the tongue, with flags from Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago referencing the Caribbean heritage of each player, as well as the date they both played together for the first time in the league for Arsenal: September 28, 1991.

The black shoe includes a cannon crest execution on the heel and colour accents taken from the Jamaican and Trinidad and Tobago flags on the three-stripe branding.

The silhouette is from the adidas ZX series, which was the brand’s first-ever performance running franchise. Now a pure lifestyle shoe, the ZX 420 was a favourite in the late '80s for the soft, cushioned feel of its triple EVA midsole.

Ian Wright MBE, said: “Rocky and I grew up together, playing football on our estate, before eventually playing together at Arsenal. We were best friends and 21 years since he left us, I still miss and think about him every day. Rocky is the reason our whole estate supported Arsenal and he taught me what it meant to be an Arsenal player.

“The adidas Honor Oak represents the start of the football journey we both went on, coming from the Honor Oak Estate in Brockley and playing out our dream of one day playing together as professionals. I’m so happy we got to make these shoes as another small way to keep Rocky’s legacy alive.” 

There will be 1,991 limited edition shoes available, which have now sold out.  Please check out Arsenal Direct, for more information and to see the latest drops!
